Olay, not as sensitive for me !


I was so happy to find a product that is for sensitive skin and at such a good price. I had been using it for about a week when I had a reaction to it. I suffer frequently from hives so I was upset that I could no longer use it. I did stop using it for around six months then gave it another try only to have the same reaction. It did have a real chemical smell to it so I did read the label and was quite surprised, or not, by the nasty list of ingredients on the back. I have now changed to Certified Organic products, what a relief for my skin but it does cost more. The Olay was worth the try , just not for me.

Purchased in January 2019 at Munno Para Foodland for $6.00.

Decent Face Sunscreen Product


The market does not have a lot of face sunscreen for sensitive skin.
It is a bit oily but it's work and with the price tag. I think it's fair that do not expect too much.

It's a daily use face sunscreen for me and been using for a few years.
I would conclude it as a decent economically face sunscreen product.

Purchased in December 2018 at Woolworths.

Better as a sunscreen than a moisturiser


I have sensitive skin and find most 30+ SPF products too oily, heavy and irritating. As Olay was on special at the supermarket, I picked up a bottle (plastic pump pack is great!) to try. That was 2 years ago. I use this as a sunscreen only for the days that I go out in the sun, and I layer it on last after my regular toner-serum-moisturiser. The thick white fluid does go on a little oily with a slightly white cast, but settles in after about 20 minutes. If it still looks shiny, I blot gently with a tissue. It does its job as a sunscreen that doesn’t irritate my skin, so I’m happy with it and have continued to purchase. I can’t comment on its moisturising properties though.

Sad about how Olay has changed


I have been using Olay since I was 14 i am now 69 I have been noticing my eyes are blurd over the last few years I am not the only one some of my friends fell the same I think it has something to do with the cream I am useing it has changed not happy with it.



It doesn't moisturise- it dries you out!!!


I have used this for 3days and started to give me drty itchy white patches on my face, i just thought it was the winter, but I've used other moisturisers and didn't have those problem. Yesterday after shower i applied this Olay moisturiser on my face and the white flaky patches turned red and my skin was burning. I have used Olay moisturiser for few years and 2 years ago I started using Neutrogena because I didn't feel Olay was moisturising- last week I decided to buy Olay again thinking it's still good. The company is cheating it's customers- I'm sure they are adding nasty chemicals. ACC will be informed.

Works well


There's not a huge amount to say as this product does exactly as described, works well as a moisturiser. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I'd like it to be a little thinner, its a medium consistency rubs in quite well just if you have other products on as well it gets a bit harder. Oh yeh and don't cry or rub your eyes unless you like a burning pain for several hours. Quite good for sensitive or acne prone skin.



I have been using the 30+ Day Cream for Sensitive Skin for about 6 years. I loved this product. It didn't react with my skin, it was light and non-greasy. My skin always looked great. The last bottle I just
purchased smelt different, was greasy to touch, has been greasy on my face and neck, my face was red, have had breakouts and my eyes are itchy and sore. I will not be purchasing this product again.

Burnt my skin


The Olay Complete Defense Daily/sensitive skin burnt the skin on my face, neck & chest causing an itching, red, burning rash. I've used this product years ago without any issues.

Still leaves the skin dry


Hey guys, i got this as a sales assistant recommended the sensitive version. I know everyone skin is different but this moisturizer just doesn't do the job. My face felt reallty dry and when it is first applied it takes a little while for the silver sheen to be rubbed in to make it disappear. For the same price I definitely prefer Nivea

BEWARE -Damaged Skin for life-Wrinkle from the puffiness.


I bought Oil of Olay.
Face and eyes became swollen, red raw and burning. Became so uncomfortable went to doctor and gave me tablets and cortisone cream. Because I was red, itchy and burned affected for over a week. I had great wrinkle free skin and took great care all these years and did not have wrinkles and now permanently affected. Not the same formula I remember using years before and made in Thailand. God knows what contaminants were in it.

Silky moisturiser with 30+


Complete defence 30+ for sensitive skin provides all the uva uvb protection skin needs, delivered in a silky elegant lotion. I have been using this for years in a hot humid climate and it doesnt irritate my sensitive skin. Doesnt feel greasy and works well under any makeup. Highly recommend.

Great basic daily moisturiser.


I like this product. It feels light yet really hydrates my skin. The pump is great. The packaging is attractive and small enough to fit in your hand bag.
Leaves my skin feeling moist and offers good UV protection. The price is ok. It's easily sourced.
Some may not like the fragrance though I do and I have sensitive skin and have had no problems.

My mum swears by this she has bottles of it in her cupboard. Following her advice I though I would try it out myself. It has anti aging properties which is great for mature skin, and seeing as my skin is starting to show signs of aging this product is now suitable for me as well. With a SPF 30 Sun protection this cream really protects against the harsh UV's, which is essential living in the tropics. It is not at all greasy and has no real scent so to speak. It is perfect for daywear under makeup and it sells for a brilliant price.
Good price for a suncream and moisturiser in one.

This is an amazing moisturiser


Love this moisturiser! I have tried a lot of moisturisers over the years, ranging from Simple to Clinique and this is really amazing. Light enough to sink in quick but offers a good base for make-up. Living in Australia it is great to have the UV protection as well. It's great if you get out the shower and keep your face wet and put it on straight away, it really makes your skin glow!

Good price for a good product


Been using this product for the last 5years, never turn back to anything else, very light in my skin, yet protecting from UV and hidrating as well. You can find this product almost everywhere that selling good beauty products. Have choices of normal and sensitive skin, I love the mild scented and not over powering like any other moisturizer.
very light on the skin, easy to apply, UV protect, not expensive

A great moisturiser that really works




  • 91 reviews



Overall, this is an amazing product that works extremely well. I put it on first thing in the morning, and I have never burnt my face. it works as a moisturiser and a very effective sunscreen. Its light and doesn't effect your make-up. Easily absorbed and feels good on your skin. Doesn't irritiate your skin.
This is a greta moisuriser that i use daily. I don't like sunscreens as they clog pores and make my make-up slip off, but this is light and does the job very successfully.
Sometimes hard to find the sensitive variety in the shops. would like to see this more widely available.

An excellent idea combining such as great moisturiser and SPF UV protection. For people that like to apply moisteriser in the morning or before applying make up, I think that this would be an excellent product. I only tend to moisturise once a day at night which makes it not so appropriate. I would consider using this as a stand alone sunscreen as it is SPF 30 and feels so much lighter on your skin that most suncreams do.
Light weight and excellent feel. Moisturises your face whilst protecting it from sun damage.
The sunscreen makes it sting your eyes if you get it in.

This is a reliable non greasy and non fragrant moisturizer. I have been using for over 10 years and have never had a problem with this product and have recommended it to others. My skin feels soft all the time and I feel better and moisturized as soon as I use it.
Reliable product. Not greasy. Lasts over 8 hours of moisture. I use it every day and apply once in the morning. If I was going to go out in the sun I would reapply it to ensure it was SPF30+. Have been using this product for about 10 years and I have recommended to other people who have also used it for along time.
Expensive. It is over $10 a bottle.
